It happens that sometimes in the middle of the most austere and complicated panorama, comes a story of those who manage to make you smile, you can convince that if they fight, sometimes they reach high goals. This is what has happened in India, where widows today have a place to start to believe in their lives.

Specifically you have to go to the holy city of Vrindavan, in the state of Uttar Pradesh, where about 30,000 to 40,000 Indian widows, considered by the Hindu belief a bad omen and a curse. This is where the first dispensary was born, thanks to the help of the Spanish organization ” SOS Woman “, which has struggled against bureaucratic impediments and others linked to a society deeply rooted in religion, besides the fact that the person who is behind this initiative, Diana Ros, is foreign woman.

That was the real beginning of my success. As I explained my Indian staff, without that blessing could never have gotten to where I am now. After the blessing, other powerful political and blessed me almost forced by the fact that he had already blessed with this man “, says Ros.

Stripped of his life

It is located on the banks of Yamuna River, a tributary of the Ganges. This is where widows traveling all over India to await death, that Krishna released their karma so you can enter nirvana, where no one can tear them already. Diana Ros Hence Vridaban concerns as “the last stop”. It is, therefore, expect where the end of his life, a life that believe that no longer makes sense because after the death of their husbands are stripped of all their possessions and disowned by their families.
